I always thought he was a female ♂ Since his head horn thing was small. So should I take him to a vet very soon or does it seem self treatable, and thank you for the help!
Well if that is a lay bin pull it out... All plants should have the soil covered in 1 inch or larger river rock to keep him out of it. But I would fill out the form If you have a husbandry issue we can help you correct it. I would take him to the vet if you are suspecting health issues as well. IF he has been eating the soil it is an impaction risk.Thank you and should I cover the soil with dirt ? Or moss?
I may have chuckled a bit after reading the title and looking at the cham. Definitely a male. Id make a vet visit. But feel free to fill this out so we can help out more.
Your Chameleon - Male Veiled Chameleon, 7-8 months old (very close estimation). hes been in my care for 6 1/2 months
Handling - once every 2 days, i only handle him if he comes to me when i open his enclosure.
Feeding - i feed him crickets mainly which i gutload with "Nature Zone Total Bites for Crickets" , he eats about 6 to 15 crickets a day and he doesn't eat if he's not hungry . once in a while ill give him one hornworm to munch on. i also stopped giving him mealworms since i read they are bad for chameleons.
Supplements - For calicum i use "Repti-Calcium without D3" and for vitamins i use "Zoo Meds Reptivite Reptile Vitamins" i dust the crickets with vitamins once every other feeding and i also dust 12 crickets with calcium once per week.

Yeah huge mistake on my part for not doing enough research haha, but now I knowSeriously the easiest chameleon to sex from the egg no less. It amazes me that a chain petstore could not even get that right?! I laughed one day when Petco told me their panther chameleon was a female because it didn't have the spurs lol
